From all indications, Jesse Lingard will not remain as Man United player this season as a loan move away to Portuguese outfit FC Porto is being considered.

The summer transfer window has not ended in the Portuguese league which makes it possible for the player to leave the club as he will not be favoured with playing time under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

According to ESPN, FC Porto are seriously considering the option of Jesse Lingard for a season-long deal and it is understood that an offer might be accepted by the player but it is yet to be seen if the Red Devils will allow him to leave.

It is also understood that Jesse Lingard is attracting interest from North London outfit Tottenham while some clubs in Italy and Spain have also registered their interest in the Man United player.

Man United have been able to add five major players to the team in the just concluded summer transfer window which leaves manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a number of options in most positions.

However, the Red Devils have already started the campaign on a slow note, suffering two defeats in three games which leave them in a difficult situation to save their season.
